Off-The-Shelf 3-Pt. Adapts Easily To Allis WD 45
When Don Kuch decided to get a tractor, he had in mind an Allis Chalmers WD 45 like his father used to own. The problem was he wanted one with a 3-pt hitch. It wasn't a problem for long, though.
"I knew how the WD 45 lift arms worked. I had seen a 3-pt. quick hitch in the Northern Tool catalog," says Kuch. "I knew the hitch could be mounted on the tractor and it was easy to do."
All Kuch had to do was drill holes in the quick hitch unit to match the lift arms. The difference in spacing between the quick hitch uprights and the WD 45 lift arms required Kuch to position the lift arms on the outside of the uprights on one side and on the inside of the uprights on the other side.
"I bought a rotary tiller for it to till my 30 by 15-ft. garden and a 7-ft. grader blade that I use for snow. It's much fun," says Kuch.
